Many of you have helped me pick out my "nice" pipe - so I thank you very much. When I got home from a trip tonight, it was here waiting for me. It's the Larrysson Pickaxe. Pipe. The first thing I did was load a bowl of Lanes BCA after I lightly coating the bowl with honey. She smokes like a dream. I dont know what to compare it with other than my 2 Boswells. She smokes cool, smooth and steady. It was bigger than I thought it would be but fits nicely into my hands. The craftsmanship is exquisite. I also had 2 lbs of 1Q and 1 lbs of Lanes BCA waiting for me.
